Summary

Eve and Dinah are everything to one another, never parted day or night. They are raised among the Children, a commune of strays and orphans ruled by Uncle, the mysterious patriarch. All they know is the grey Isle of Altnaharra which sits in the black sea off the wildest coast of Scotland. 

Eve loves the free, savage life of the Isle and longs to inherit Uncle's vision. She is untroubled save by her dreams of soft arms and a woman singing. Dinah longs for something other. But the world is at war and cannot be kept at bay. As the solitude of Altnaharra is broken, Eve's faith and sanity fracture. In a great storm, in the depths of winter, as the old year dies, the locals discover a devastating scene. 

Eve and Dinah's stories of what really happened that night contradict and intertwine. As past and present converge, only one woman can be telling the truth. Who is guilty, who innocent?

Incredible

Possibly the best book I've ever read. A true masterwork, that creates characters and atmosphere so deep I'm distraught to leave them.

Not your average page turner!

Thoroughly entertaining, it takes about 15 mins to get off the ground but after that I couldn't "put it down"

Great book abd amazing narrator but low volume

The volume is unfortunatlvery very quiet on this book. I had trouble hearing the narrator on speaker, and had to use headphones on max volume. Still couldn't make out the words if I was in traffic or if I was in the same room as a washing machine or something. Too bad because the book and narrator are both amazing.
